Default What is this beast??

I found this advertised in a garage sale on Craigslist. The mention that it is a cast iron grill. Looks like the mother of all DOs. Anyone seen one like this?

I don't know what I could use it for... but might have to go take a look/see.

It looks like one of those 3 legged South African cooking pots. Are they called a pokie or pokei or something like that?

Do the legs look like an add-on and does it have a bottom vent?

No, that's not quite a potjie pot, but somewhat similar.
It almost looks like it has an adjustable vent on top.

Good call Joe, that's how it is spelled. Makes perfect sense being round on the bottom...

It looks like someone tried to make a potjie by taking an old cast pot and putting it on a stand.

Looks to me like a Jumblya pot.
